Beautiful pictures! That stinks that Timmy was not feeling well. Hope he got over it quickly and that you were all able to take a shower!

Poor Timmy. You can tell in that pic he's just not feeling good at all.

Ok, now this made me laugh out loud. Probably because I'm a divorce attorney and one of the last pieces of advice I give my clients before I send them on their way is to remind them how quick it was to get married and how god awful long it was to get divorced and that, should they ever contemplate marriage again, to really think about it good and long. I hope they listen but sometimes doubt they do.

Beautiful pictures, as always!

Poor Timmy! Nothing worse than not feeling good, and being away from home.

More GORGEOUS pictures!! I know this is going to shock you, but I am not a roughing it in the great outdoors kinda girl , but I would love to see all this. Incredible!

M-E-G-A update!

Beautiful, beautiful pictures of your hike. I really need to plan to stop there when we finally () go back to Cali!
After Tom's spa visit we have started taking on hikes again - and that would be right up my street!

Thanks for sharing, Ellen!

Poor Timmy! so sorry he had to sit out that beautiful hike. It really does look like a gorgeous area.

Yeah - I would not have been a fan of going back down those stairs. I have gotten so uncoordinated that I prefer to walk on level ground. I feel like I am a trip and fall just waiting to happen.

Too bad the other boys didn't make it to the emerald pool. I bet that's stunning.

Ugh to the broken shower. No fun at all!

Oh yeah, we left you stranded in California! Nice updates! I love your Yosemite pics! Don't beat yourself up about the steps - sometimes caution is a good thing. Now if you want to be out in nature, how about Glamping? You rent a plush RV, you sleep in a real bed, you have a microwave and a coffee maker and a DVD and a flushing toilet and shower, comfy furniture. Then you put your chairs outside and enjoy your coffee while you smell the air and check out the view and have lots of family fun! ( I may have a little experience, although we owned our RV) I hope Timmy got to feeling better!

What a great trip report! Loved it, great pictures. Living in PA, SF is so beautiful and Muir Woods, awesome. Have been there and need to revisit. Did you get to the Disney Museum? We happened upon it on opening day. Yosemite is some place I need to visit. Thanks for making my morning enjoyable!

That stinks. There are laws against being sick on vacation.

Holy cow...there's quite a story there! Anyway, I'll take the road up there, thanks.

I usually don't do that- chicken out- and I am SO mad at myself for chickening out this day! UGH! I need to go back!
Say it ain't so! Or at least that the others took the camera so they could get pictures up there.

Glamping actually sounds like fun. Is it really called Glamping?

So funny about Sarah and her foodie tastes- have I told you I am an only child, too? Cant't remember.....anyway, I was just like Sarah, ate all kinds of adult foods when I was a kid. Absolutely despised spaghettios and chef boyardee, would not touch it or PB&J. Completely humiliated my parents when, at the age of 7, I ordered the Maine lobster for dinner when my Great Aunt & Uncle were treating ( they laughed it off- they fortunately could afford it and thought it was awesome I could crack my own lobster at 7- but I had been doing that since I was 5). So...yea- good for Sarah! I know where she's coming from!
Ticker gone. I loved my "me, myself and I" trip to AKV. Loved it so much that I think I am going to do it again next year, probably in May though instead of March. I have only a few days I can steal away in March whereas in May I can take an entire week. Hopefully some of my disboards friends will be there at the same time. This time a co-worker was visiting so I actually hung out with her and her family a bit. As much as I enjoyed the "me" time, it was also fun to hook up with others for a few meals and drinks.

No, I did not know you were an only child. We had planned on more children but after the adoption expenses we had to wait to build up our funds and by that time Sarah was old enough to be included in the decision. When we asked if she wanted a sibling she was adamant in her decision. She did not want siblings, period. She still feels the same. And she is a social butterfly, she just likes being an only child.

Most people just call it camping, but that can mean anything from sleeping out in the open on the ground to amazing RVs. I have heard the term Glamping, meaning glamorous camping before and I thought it just fit here. It really is nice, because you can be comfortable, especially when you are more mature, yet you can be away from the daily grind and just have some down time close to nature.

Great pics in your update Ellen! I hope Timmy got to feeling better quickly. Can't wait to read more. And as for a functioning shower...c'mon people at the hotel...a bed and a working bathroom...that's what you're paying for!!
